Go Texan Day: We want to see your office's getups

When I was a little girl, I knew when it was rodeo season ? not because I was patiently awaiting the deep-fried everything and playing with goats at the petting zoo, which I definitely was ? but because on the Friday before the rodeo rolled out, I was dressed Texan to a T. I'd have tiny cowboy boots with a matching hat and a bandana around my neck; and a few years, my mom handmade my Western wear. While I might not still have her as my personal clothier, she instilled the tradition in me just?

How to grow your communication skills

Human communication is complex, but the first thing that comes to mind when we hear the word ?communication? is often spoken or written words. However, the words we speak and hear are just one way we communicate, and some studies show that most of our communication takes place through other means. Humans communicate in many different ways, such as verbal, nonverbal, body language and artistic communication, which is through images or music. The way we communicate with people affects all aspects?

Festive locals gather together for eclipse show

With sweaty, sun-beaten necks craned upward, starry-eyed Houstonians gazed in awe early Monday afternoon as the solar eclipse, the first in nearly a century to pass from coast to coast of the United States, reached its climactic crescent. Thousands abandoned their air-conditioned havens and gathered in the sweltering summer heat in parks across the city to witness the partial eclipse-which experts say covered around 67 percent of the sun in Houston-with the help of eclipse glasses, specialty binoculars, or makeshift cereal box viewers. More than 2,000 onlookers crowded into the5.9-acre Levy Park in Upper Kirby for an artsy and informative viewing event hosted by the Lunar and Planetary Institute.

Free backpacks, haircuts aim to start school year off on right foot

The five boys in the five barber shop chairs, all spun to face the door and the bustling back-to-school event outside, wore the same Kut N Zone branded smocks - and the same distant expression. Barber shops are where men gather to talk about grown-up stuff, each face seemed to say, so I guess I'm a man, too. Even if I'm just 6. Free haircuts and backpacks were the chief draws for parents of Houston ISD board president Wanda Adams' 4th annual event, which also gave eligible families a way to sign up for free or reduced-price school lunches and to ensure their children were up-to-date on vaccinations. Some families also received vouchers to help pay for school uniforms.

Glitch sparks concerns about fully funding new grant programs for kids with disabilities

AUSTIN - State lawmakers agreed to spend $40 million on school district programs for children with dyslexia and autism, but the Legislature botched the fine print in drafting the final version of the bill, and special education advocates worry the result could cut that check in half. After lawmakers spent much of the last year working to address shortcomings in the state's special education system, the governor Wednesday signed a bill to give $20 million in grants to prop up model programs for students with autism and $20 million in grants for students with dyslexia.

NASA to get new administrator under Trump

WASHINGTON - The Trump administration appears close to naming Oklahoma U.S. Rep. Jim Bridenstine, a military aviator and Rice University graduate, to become the next NASA administrator, according to two industry sources. NASA officials declined comment Wednesday, directing inquiries to the White House, where officials indicated only that an announcement could be pending. Bridenstine's office did not respond to a request for comment. But two industry officials who have worked with the space agency said Bridenstine's nomination has been widely regarded as virtually certain for several weeks. The sources requested anonymity because they are not cleared to publicly discuss the nomination.

Dashcam video released in body-cavity search

The lawyer for a 23-year-old woman suing the Harris County Sheriff's Office over a roadside body cavity search is asking for a special prosecutor to be appointed following the district attorney's office dismissal of the cases against two deputies charged with official oppression. Attorney Sam Cammack, flanked by protesters and Black Lives Matter activists at a news conference Monday in front of the Harris County Criminal Courthouse, said the two deputies should be facing justice instead of having their cases dismissed on the eve of trial. Cammack filed a civil rights lawsuit on behalf of Charneshia Corley, contending the deputies violated her constitutional rights by conducting the roadside search. Cammack called for a special prosecutor to investigate the allegations and, presumably, take the deputies to trial for official oppression. Department policy prohibits deputies from conducting strip searches without a warrant and requires they be conducted in a private, sanitary facility. [...] female officers told Corley to remove her pants and shone a flashlight onto her exposed genital area to conduct a "visual strip search," according to her lawsuit. The view of the search is blocked by car doors, but Corley can be seen being placed on the ground without her pants and with her legs pinioned in an awkward position for more than 10 minutes while the female deputy shines a flashlight in the area. The charge against Corley was later dropped by the district attorney's office, according to court records. McIlhenny said the full dashcam video and audio shows that Corley could be heard saying she had smoked marijuana earlier that day and that she had never had a driver's license.
